First look: Last Christmas

Emilia Clarke and Henry Goldng star in rom-com Last Christmas, which is currently filming in the UK.

The film is directed by Paul Feig and written by Emma Thompson. It’s story is inspired by the song of the same name, written by George Michael.

“It’s first and foremost a love story set in 2016, against a backdrop of Brexit and Trump, and a chance to go against so much intolerance and see what a melting pot London, and the world, is,” Feig told Baz Bamigboye.

Clarke plays Kate, with Thompson as her mother. “She had to leave the former Yugoslavia to come to Britain and now feels unwelcome because of Brexit,” Thompson said.

Golding’s Tom is described as being “out of sync with the modern world”.

The film will be released later this year.
